So which smartphone has the most satisfied owners in the U.S.? The Apple iPhone 5
? Guess again. The Samsung Galaxy S III
? Nope. 93,825 U.S. smartphone owners were asked how satisfied they were with their current smartphone and the winner was the Motorola ATRIX HD
with a score of 8.57. The survey was taken from last July through the end of last month and Motorola was well represented because the Motorola DROID RAZR M
was next with a score of 8.5. Motorola's build quality
is quite impressive and that might have led to these results. In third place, the HTC Rezound 4G
scored 8.32. The Samsung GALAXY Note II
is fourth with an 8.26 score followed by the Apple iPhone 5 which finished fifth with a score of 8.23.
In the U.K., the Apple iPhone 5 placed higher, coming in second despite a lower 8.21 score. With an 8.47 score,the HTC One X
led the way in the U.K. with the Samsung GALAXY Note II (8.18) third. The Samsung Galaxy S III mini
and Samsung Galaxy S III
finished fourth (8.18) and fifth (8.09) respectively.
Surprised? It is an interesting survey as it looks at satisfaction rather than popularity and the results could give Motorola the optimism that it is heading in the right direction, at least in the U.S. where the Motorola X is eagerly awaited.
